    Dear Synergy community, even if I'm a very satisfied Synergy User for many, many years (must be >5 years), I have never posted something in the forum. However, today I thought it is time to write this post about an issue with the French grave accent (è). On my Server computer I can easily create this character by pressing Shift + "´"-key followed by the "e"-key. However, this doesn't work on my client PC. No character will be put on the screen, when I press this combination. The "e" with the accent in the other direction (é; acute accent) works perfect on the Server and Client, but not the accent grave. Is this a known issue and how can it be fixed? My Computer configuration is the following: Server: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit Client: Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit Keyboard: German keyboard Synergy Version: 1.8.6-stable Many thanks for your support and best regards Markus

    I have been using 2 for a while now (ever since it came out?), before it was declared beta. I am only sharing between two Macs, so no issues with cross-operating systems. I kind of like it, and have been too lazy I guess to downgrade to 1. I am however a bit disappointed that 2 appears to have moved down from "beta" to "abandoned". I would have expected continuing incremental updates.

    I have two Macs and a Windows Laptop. Both macs unfortunately chose the same default name 'curtis-MBP'. Synergy 2.0 seems to use that to identify the computer, and gets confused between the two. I have since changed one of the computer names in System Preferences, but synergy still wants to use the old/wrong name. How do I change the name that syngery 2 uses to identify the mac?

    Bump? Is there a way I can change the name synergy 2 uses for a mac? Is that stored in a config file somewhere ?

    Just install synergy version 2 and then if it’s docent shows up in piracy & security access settings then you should reinstall Mac OS, and that worked for me, and then I would start clean, and then I redownload synergy version 2, and then I would go into time machine reinstall your stuff separate, and I hope this information helps you.

    I've had same problem after new install on macos mojave. I've solved the problem simply by typing in the ip and pressed start, then i deleted ip and retyped it again and pressed apply. After reboot things working as expected. I hope this works for everyone else too.

    Hey all, I just got synergy a couple of months ago and it has been working out great so far. I only have one minor nit pick and am not sure how many feel the same way. Problem: I have a Desktop and a MacBook and have Synergy 1.0 installed on both of them. Due to the nature of my set up, I would love to be able to use my Macbook's Keyboard while using my Desktop's Mouse. This is currently not possible due to Synergy defining a whole system being a Master, while the other being a Slave. Request: I would love to be able to separately definitely which system will have the Master Keyboard and which will have the Master Mouse. If any dev sees this, I would love to know how complex a change like this is and whether it should be something that is doable or impossible due to some fundamental limitation.

    Ah, yes I could do that, but I have a MacBook Pro with only usb c ports. so in order to do this, I would need to plug in my USB adapter, unplug my mouse from desktop (which is also a hassle as my desktop is located at the bottom of my desk), and plug the mouse into the MacBook. I got synergy to avoid doing that in the first place. Haha. The set up is working great now except I have to reach around the back of my laptop to my desktop’s keyboard whenever I want to type something on my desktop.

    There's a bug on our download page where it sometimes shows Ubuntu users the Debian download. Please use this instead: https://symless.com/synergy/download/direct?platform=ubuntu&architecture=x64 Let me know if that doesn't work and we can try something else.

    In the UI, click on "Configure Server", drag a new screen onto the grid and name it the same as your client. That will get it going.

    Synergy 2: How to uninstall and reinstall

    Jonathan Sparks, Pure genius! I have been hunting for a solution to the "Synergy with a system on VPN" for months...just happened to get the google search phrase correct to see this thread. I am now enjoying a Synergy Shared KBD and Mouse across my two systems with one on VPN. Thanks so much for this

    It takes a little work, but it is possible to use Synergy over VPN without split-tunneling. Here is what I did. 1) Register yourself a free (or paid if you don't want 30-day nags) dynamic DNS address (DDNS) from a place like dynDNS or no-ip 2) Register for the Pro version of Synergy to get that sweet, sweet SSL security. You're going to be opening some pin holes, so best to keep the connection secure while in transit 3) Select a non-default port for Synergy to use - again security precaution From you home network router: 4) Create a DHCP reservation or assign a static IP for your server system 5) Create a port forwarding rule on the router that will forward all traffic destined for the port you determined in step 3 to the IP to determined in step 4 (source should be any IP, any port) From Server system 6) Install Synergy if you haven't already done so, select server, and register your Pro key from step 2 7) On the Settings menu, enter the port number to determined in step 3, check the "Use SSL Security" box and click OK 8) Click Configure Server and then add your client screens as you normally would From home router or server system 9a) If router supports automatic dynamic DNS updates, configure your router to update the address you registered in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address -or- 9b) Install the DNS update client from the service used in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address From your client system(s) 10) Install Synergy and select Client 11) For "Server IP," enter the DDNS address you created in step 1 (don't use auto config) 12) Make sure to set the same port number from step 3 in the Settings screen 13) Watch the magic happen I think that about covers it...
